Edda Night! (2022)

“May this year be full of proud deeds and silly games, beautiful songs and hearty feasts, clever jokes, loving friends, and enough surprises to keep us on our toes.”

Bruce Goldstone, “A Gnome’s Christmas”

According to the aforementioned traditional/Wil Hyugen and Rien Poortvliet-style book, “A Gnome’s Christmas,” today is Edda Night – the last day of the Gnomes’ holiday season, and the start of their new year!

I don’t know yet how that may inspire the end of the holidays in Tock’s culture, but I couldn’t resist drawing her in celebration with other Gnomes from different realms, anyway ❀

From left to right:

As far as the human realm goes, I hope you all have had the best start to your year – smooth, no drama! Picturing you surrounded with light and warmth, wherever you are.

Gnomevember 2021 day 28 (Sunday Gnomedays!)

Today’s prompt being “Coffee break!”

This is absolutely semi-canon for “Tock the Gnome” (as in I’m not sure if this is exactly where they’ll end up, but it might be). Tock and Onna are in the Gnome lands, on a train – Onna has been hired as muscle for a trip full of dignitaries, and Tock’s gone along with her, determined to turn it into a working date. As luck would have it, something in the engine breaks down, and Tock is there to fix it (fancy gown or no!). Afterward they rest, having some coffee that’s been “borrowed” from Bumble (which he would have taught Onna to make, Actia having taught him).

You can read more of their specifically canon adventures here! Including the comic proper, which is also available across several platforms.

Gnomevember 2021 day 11

Today’s prompt being “Favorite Transportation.”

Roller skates are currently gaining in popularity in Gnomish culture. And yes, Tock did have a pair for a while. Her adoptive inventor brother-in-law/mentor made them for her…. and of course, chaos ensued.

Leading Bumble to steal and hide them from her within a week.

(The aforementioned mentor then ended up making those stilts for her to make up for it.)

And if you’re not familiar with “Tock the Gnome” but are curious, you can read more/see more about her here! 🀎

Sunday Gnomedays 8-23-20

sundaygnomedays82320_gotcha_tockthegnome

Time again ❀ With Tock the Gnome and Onna the Orc! Smol loves are easily scoopable, but may sneak attack you with nose kisses.

(And I believe that the fact that I haven’t given Tock more hats with big bows on the back is a Gnomish National Travesty.)

This drawing manifested in self-care over the fact that despite my love and deep respect for Tolkien’s works, he is SO harsh on the poor Orcses, and that of course carries over into much of the fandom.Β 

Moral of story: when fangirling is troublesome, aggressively ship your own characters.Β
